Andrew Finn GS, ENG

University Administrative Fellow
GradFUTURES Forum Speaker

I am the current Vice President of the Graduate Student Government, a University Administrative Fellow, and an English Department PhD Candidate who specializes in medieval English literature.

I have also served as a University Administrative Fellow with Princeton Research Day.

I am originally from the California Bay Area but went to college in Maine, followed by my master's degree in England. I am currently a Ph.D. candidate in the English Department, where I focus on late medieval poetry and critical theory. Beyond my interests in medieval literature and literary theory, I am the Academic Affairs Chair on the Grad Student Government. I also formerly served as the graduate student Academic Programming Chair in the English Department. When I am not writing or teaching, I am hiking, running, reading, going to museums, watching shows and movies, or playing board games.

"My participation in the academic side of Graduate Student Government and the English Department's Graduate Action Committee have together fostered my desire to more deeply explore the administrative side of the Princeton academic experience. Since joining the UAF program, that desire has been met: getting an inside glimpse into and working on expanding Princeton's offerings of inter-departmental collaboration and platforms for sharing student research has been an enriching experience.

I am a University Administrative Fellow for Christine Murphy and Pascale Poussart. Working with them on various aspects of Princeton Research Day, with a particular focus on expanding humanities participation, has been deeply rewarding. Furthermore, I look forward to using Princeton Research Day as a platform for thinking further about ways in which Princeton can provide meaningful platforms for undergraduates, graduates, and postdocs to share their hard work and efforts with one another in a collaborative, supportive environment."
